America's favorite Atlanta “Housewives” star Dwight has the blogosphere in an uproar with news that he is getting a wife of his own. The flamboyant hairstylist who was first introduced as NeNe Leakes's best friend and confidante on the premiere season has confirmed exclusively to ESSENCE.com that he is engaged to a woman.
Although a date has not been set, Dwight's bride-to-be has no qualms about his appreciation for both sexes. And it hasn’t stopped other women from pursuing the hairstylist and divo extraordinaire for romantic liaisons.
“I get more play from women than men," says Dwight, who recently celebrated his fiftieth birthday with a circus theme and male and female models to escort him through the room. "I can’t get a date with a man, but the women are knocking my doors down. They just love you when you can be real about who you are.”
And this isn’t Dwight’s first time planning to get hitched to the fairer sex, quieting speculation that his heterosexual relationship is a publicity stunt to garner buzz for his upcoming Bravo reality show.
“I was engaged two years ago to a prominent lawyer in the city,” he shares.
In Atlanta, a city known for its high population of gay and rumored down low Black men, keeping it real remains an important part of a relationship. Dwight shares he is completely honest with his intended about his sexuality.
“It’s really interesting because the men are so standoffish, but the women don’t care," says Dwight. "Most of the men around here are gay, lying to their wives, slipping and dipping and all that, but it is what it is. You have to enjoy life, and that’s what I am doing.”
Stay tuned for more details on Dwight and his bride-to-be.
